X1 made of carbon fiber, Thinkpad 8 full Windows 8 tablet

PC manufacturer Lenovo today at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show announced additions to its product portfolio -- the third-generation ThinkPad X1 Carbon, the company's lightest 14-inch ultrabook, and the ThinkPad 8, a premium eight-inch tablet offering what the company calls "a full PC experience on the move." To complement its laptop line, Lenovo has also introduced the new ThinkPad OneLink Dock Pro, an enhanced docking solution through a single cable connector.

Few concrete specs for the Thinkpad X1 Carbon are available, but the carbon fiber-constructed laptop weighs 2.8 pounds, and features the Lenovo Adaptive Keyoard, which Lenovo claims "dynamically adjusts based on the software or application being used to highlight the most relevant keys." The display is antiglare, at either a 1600x900 or 2560x1440 resolution. The new Ultrabook features a rapid-charge technology, giving users an 80 percent charge in under an hour, with up to a nine-hour battery life. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon starts at $1,299 and will be available in late January.

The new ThinkPad OneLink Pro Dock combines all necessary docking features and functions, including power, through a single cable connection to Lenovo notebooks equipped with an OneLink connector. The ThinkPad OneLink Pro Dock includes multiple USB ports, audio and Ethernet connections, and driver-free dual video support through DisplayPort and DVI on selected models. The integrated 90W AC adapter also provides power for the notebook, supports rapid charge and can also charge other devices such as a smartphone. The OneLink Dock Pro is available now for $179.

The ThinkPad 8 is a Intel "Bay Trail" quad-core processor tablet running Windows 8 Pro, using an 8.3-inch, 1920x1200 display. The new tablet has up to 128GB of storage, and includes a microUSB 3.0 port, LTE, Wi-Fi, and a micro HDMI port. The ThinkPad 8 convertible tablet starts at $399 and will be available in late January.
